> Yesterday evening it wasn't too bad but this morning has felt dreadful again. Though not as bad as the previous morning. I did not take any ritalin since I don't want to make it any worse.
>
> Middle of the night I woke and could not sleep further. Laying in bed felt very uncomfortable and troublesome and wanted to get up to distract myself. Breathing is still heavy at times.
>
> Toothache has subsided. I did see a dentist yesterday and told me to give it a day or two.

> My anxiety normally is NEVER this bad under normal circumstances. Anafranil clearly having a negative impact so far. Also my general mood is quite negative, darker, bit dysphoric perhaps. The passage of time feels very slow. I feel I just want the day to pass and be over with. I feel I just want relief. It is painful like this. I don't feel tired or low energy the way I normally did prior to Anafranil. I feel more awake but I think it's likely much due to all the anxiety. There is a great deal of discomfort within me that is difficult to describe. Very low appetite too.

> It's bad enough that I keep considering giving up. The more peaceful SSRI type effect might be more ideal. I don't know. It's hard to think right now. I may give 20mg a try tonight but it's difficult to tolerate this. I might resort to taking Gabapentin to take the edge off or possibly magnesium. Perhaps I will just resort to taking gabapentin every day in order to give Anafranil a proper trial. I hope this is just a case of feeling worse before feeling better.

What is your target dose and how fast are you planning to get there?
